Our older two are Charlotte Winter (I am Lindsay Autumn) she is almost 5 and Deacon Ronald (DH's dad was Ronald), he just turned 3. I love naming babies- boys are definitely harder. I love the sound and simplicity of James. I think it's handsome, smart and masculine. Both names are very simple and classic yet they are moving away from the intricate old fashioned trend (like we did with Charlotte in 2006- when it wasn't even in the top 100). Both of our selections are very "popular" on the name lists but in my area, I have not heard of a baby with one of those names in years... not since I was in school. We get a lot of mixed responses about the name Deacon but we still love his name but this time we want to go very simple.
Our daughter is Sarah Jane, so of course I love your choice of Sarah June . Our son is Sean Patrick. So our first two children have "S" names, which wasn't done on purpose, but now my DH wants to continue with the "S" theme. I'm not sure if I do. Would it be too cutesy? We like simple, classic names. If we continue with the "S" theme for a boy we'd use Samuel Craig. For a girl DH likes Samantha, I'm not sure how in love I am with Samantha, though. All I can think of is Who's the Boss! I do like Samantha Louise, though. Other girls names I like are Caroline, Catherine, Eliza. Boys I like Peter, James, Thomas. It's funny, I always thought I'd go for more unique names, but all I'm drawn to now are the classics.
